Enable Multi-Month Subscriptions for Turbo
At this time, Turbo is only available on a monthly recurring basis.
However, Subscriptions are available in month, 3 months, and 6 months renewal increments. (This phrasing is pulled directly from the Subscription panel on Twitch. Who does your copy? Anyways…)
PROBLEM PART TWO
This discordance in user experience is confusing.
Bring feature parity to Turbo.
Full Feature Parity with Subscriptions - Turbo renewal periods would be: month, 3-month, 6-month and offer the same 10% and 15% discounts
Industry Parity - Monthly or Annual renewal, with a discount equivalent to 2 months on the annual plan ($5/month or $50/year)
PROBLEM PART THREE
Turbo has not provided users value for quite some time - and that is prior to the price increase. Many Turbo users do not benefit from VOD storage, since they do not stream. Additional global emotes are worthless. Name colours… yeah.
The price increase will lead to Turbo cancellations - the very least Twitch could do is to enable multi-month purchasing to allow users to save some money.
Directly asking users to create a UserVoice Suggestion for this issue, or any specific issue, is nothing short of asinine.
If Twitch is aware enough of a problem to voice it to the community - the community does not need to submit a UserVoice suggestion.
That the Turbo monthly subscription can be purchased for more months or even a year with a price advantage as other channel subscriptions do.
Make it so that you can buy a year long subscription to turbo for instead of 12x12 for 144, make it a round 120? I would love to watch ad free all over the site, but having another subscription auto renew monthly to keep track of, or cause of how often I hop from stream to stream subscribing to one person just doesn't work. I would like a yearly option for turbo.
The raising of the price for Turbo is ridiculous since we do not get anything additional for it to need a 4.00 price increase per month. If you are going to jack up the prices on Turbo, you need to offer a steep discount if multiple months are purchased at once like you can do for a sub to an individual streamer. 4 dollar increase with nothing to show for it is crazy.
Well stated. I was hoping this had been addressed before my yearly renewal ran out, but alas it has not.
allow multiple month turbo purchase. same as a normal twitch subscription, renew every X months. i would like to have the option to pay 12 months in advance. thanks
Maybe also offer two plans:
Turbo Basic/Lite (as Rudtrack mentions below): Ad-free only at the old price
Turbo Plus : Ad-free, custom colors, the emotes, VOD storage at the new price.
Offer these plans with pre-paid options (with discounts) like channel subscriptions too.
Perfectly put! The only value I get from Turbo is the ad-free viewing and being able to pay annually to save some money for that one specific feature would be way better!
Ideally I would like to see a "Turbo Lite" option, similar to YouTube Premium Lite, where the only perk you get is ad-free viewing, but you also get a way lower price
I despise monthly subscriptions and this is a huge impediment to me signing up for it. Many broadcasters and viewers on Twitch have ADHD, executive function, and other cognitive challenges that make monthly subscriptions dangerous to sign up for as they can lead to overdraft charges with their banks or insufficient money left on their credit cards for expenses. It's an accessibility and inclusion issue. $100+ in one gulp can be a lot for some people, but they can always do the monthly route if they need to. Ad free viewing is a mental health thing too... when watching a streamer to relax to be bombarded with high stimulation advertising can cause harm. There are 3 and 6 month channel subscription options, why can't there be a 12 month option for Turbo?
This would be awesome. I do major subscriptions on a yearly basis, and would like turbo to be one of them, like my amazon prime.
I hate paying monthly subscriptions and would happily pay for an annual subscription to Twitch Turbo. If there was an annual subscription, I would be more inclined to sign up for it.

Yes Twitch Turbo Yearly please pleaseeeeee !!! and let us knoww
Twitch Turbo is great, but I am not a fan of monthly subscriptions. It can be difficult with my financial situation since I don't have consistent income, and it's a pain having to remember and cancel subscriptions before they renew. I would love it if I could purchase Twitch Turbo for multiple months, up to a year. I would most definitely buy an annual plan, since I only have to worry about making one large payment annually which is better for me financially.
I am a creator myself, and my income fluctuates with the tides. I would like to be able to purchase more than a single month of twitch turbo at a time. Twitch Turbo is a fantastic way for me to enjoy Twitch on the months where money is tight. Being able to buy 3 or 6 or 12 months of Twitch Turbo would be very helpful to me.
I will be the first to admit that I have not touched turbo because I dislike monthly subs. Every single subscription I use I pay for yearly or not at all. Think Twitch is shooting itself in the foot by not giving this option
Maybe even a little more of a discount for prime members that do an annual plan?
Please do this Twitch 🙏
Twitch Turbo Yearly Subscription
Please allow a (slightly discounted?) yearly option for Turbo that does not auto-renew. Many other services have this and I would feel a lot better about signing up if I could do it a year at a time.
An annual subscription with a small discount compared to monthly would also provide additional incentive for users to go this route instead of alternative methods of making Twitch a more viewer-friendly experience.
Would love to see a Twitch Turbo Yearly sub option. Month to month is nice, however it ads up with all other memberships. I tend to prefer yearly subscriptions as I can take care of them for the year when I get my tax return or a bonus or an extra paycheck, etc and then not have to worry about it for the year.
